ICC Cricket World Cup - 9th match, Group B
Bangladesh won by 27 runs
25 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)
  Bangladesh innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Porterfield b Botha 44 52 43 7 0 102.32
11.1 65.8 mph, the silence is absolutely deafening, as Tamim drives a bit lazily outside off stump, and the skipper Porterfield leans forward at point to take the most crucial wicket of the day so far! 68/3
View dismissal Imrul Kayes st †NJ O'Brien b Mooney 12 29 12 2 0 100.00
6.4 79.6 mph, stunning work from O'Brien behind the sticks! Absolute lightening and the crowd is dumbstruck. Complete shock and silence as Kayes tries to flick to leg, overbalances momentarily and O'Brien makes a leg-side stumping look easy. Much, much needed for Ireland and the wicket has come through a moment of inspiration from one of their best 53/1
View dismissal Junaid Siddique run out (Joyce) 3 9 8 0 0 37.50
8.5 from Mooney, he's gone! None of the fielders looked that interested first up but some lazy running from Junaid has cost him his wicket. Mistimed a drive to mid-off and looked to skulk a single, Ed Joyce's throw hit direct and Junaid was a fraction short of his ground 61/2
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c White b Dockrell 36 95 66 2 0 54.54
33.3 42.7 mph, Dockrell strikes! The teenager makes the breakthrough, and it's a poor stroke. An injudicious sweep, against the spin, an easy top-edge, and the man on the 45 backpedals to swallow a sitter 147/5
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* c & b Botha 16 17 20 3 0 80.00
15.2 61.5 mph, now then, now then! This is a massive wicket! Shakib can't make his lifeline count, as he is beaten for lack of pace off the pitch, plays too early off the back foot and spoons a simple return catch to the bowler! 86/4
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan run out (White) 38 87 69 1 0 55.07
38.1 from Rankin, not even in the frame! Pushed to mid-on, aggressive fielding, one-handed pick up and under-arm and Raqibul has to go! Replays show he was at least two feets short of the crease, another careless way to go, and Ireland have this game by the scruff now 159/7
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful c White b Dockrell 1 9 6 0 0 16.66
35.2 49.4 mph, gah. Down on one knee, patted to backward square. A carbon copy of the Mushfiqur dismissal. And another failure for the erratic Ash 151/6
View dismissal Naeem Islam c Dockrell b Johnston 29 64 38 3 0 76.31
49.2 69.9 mph, that will be all, Naeem trying something inventive, which is no bad thing, getting down on one knee to scoop over short fine leg, gets too much bat on it and it loops straight to the man. 205/10
View dismissal Shafiul Islam lbw b Botha 2 14 17 0 0 11.76
42.3 Shafiul's torturous innings ends as he pops forward and plays around a straight ball. He called for a review but it only confirmed the worst, heading half-way up leg stump. Three wickets now for Botha, all he's done is bowl straight 170/8
View dismissal Abdur Razzak b Johnston 11 28 16 0 0 68.75
47.6 85.2 mph, another one goes. Razzak at least trying to up the pace. Slower ball and he's through a leg-side slug far too early, canons off the back pad onto the stumps. Can Bangladesh even reach 200? What a disappointing showing it's been 193/9

View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Raqibul Hasan b Shakib Al Hasan 20 31 30 2 0 66.66
9.1 48.8 mph, gone! And he strikes first ball. Massive moment in the game. Coming round the wicket, it was a touch short on leg stump but Porterfield goes back and flicks it straight to Raqibul at midwicket. He wasn't going to drop this one. 36/2
View dismissal PR Stirling st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Abdur Razzak 9 18 10 1 0 90.00
5.3 45.9 mph, gone! Bangladesh have the breakthrough and the crowd goes wild. A very full delivery almost yorked Stirling, he jabs down on it and it dribbles from his boot back towards Rahim. The batsman, meanwhile, has stumbled out of the crease and can't get back as the stumps are broken. The TV umpire is called but it was an easy decision 23/1
View dismissal EC Joyce c & b Mohammad Ashraful 16 45 35 0 0 45.71
18.1 50.1 mph, huge wicket! Joyce has gone and Ashraful is celebrating wildly! Nothing shot, Joyce just turning the bat against the spin, took a leading edge and popped back to the bowler. The celebration was delirious. Bangladesh are all over this now! 75/3
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c Tamim Iqbal b Shakib Al Hasan 38 64 52 3 0 73.07
27.4 49.1 mph, what a catch! Get the celebrations going again, Tamim is the man! Niall O'Brien tried to chip a single to square leg, got too much on it and Tamim, haring in from the boundary, dived forward full length to scoop the ball inches off the turf. Crucial wicket that, could be the one that takes the game 110/5
View dismissal AR White b Mohammad Ashraful 10 20 27 1 0 37.03
24.4 43.7 mph, Ashraful is dancing again! You'd think he's just won the tournament. As it is he snared White who played back to a ball he should have got forward to. Hung his bat out in defence and it spun back past the inside edge onto off stump 93/4
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c sub (Suhrawadi Shuvo) b Shafiul Islam 37 46 40 3 1 92.50
36.4 82.6 mph, gone! The game changes again. O'Brien can't believe what he's done. Dragged down by Shafiul, O'Brien's eyes lit up but he pulled it straight down the throat of deep square-leg 151/6
View dismissal AC Botha b Shafiul Islam 22 55 36 2 0 61.11
40.1 83.8 mph, Shafiul strikes! Huge blow and that could be it, that must be it! The crowd are deafening. Full ball on leg stump and somehow Botha contrived to play around it 168/8
View dismissal JF Mooney b Naeem Islam 0 16 8 0 0 0.00
39.4 51.5 mph, gone! Another careless shot from an Ireland batsman, but Bangladesh won't care how they get them. Was wide of off stump and he tried to sweep it and only managed to get a bottom edge into the stumps 164/7
View dismissal DT Johnston lbw b Shafiul Islam 6 10 6 1 0 100.00
42.1 83.0 mph, Shafiul does it again! Johnston has asked for a review but it looks gone, lbw prodding forward to a ball that nipped back. Yes indeed, time to celebrate, the review confirms the wicket. The light is disappearing now for Ireland 171/9
GH Dockrell not out 4 21 12 0 0 33.33
View dismissal WB Rankin c Junaid Siddique b Shafiul Islam 3 12 13 0 0 23.07
44.6 72.6 mph, that'll be that! Bangladesh have done it, Shafiul finishes with four as Rankin chips to short midwicket. The crowd go absolutely wild, as well they might. Halfway through the hosts were in big trouble after a shoddy batting performance but their bowlers have pulled off a vital victory 178/10
